Z5 Premium user here. I just put Greenify and ForceDoze together (I activated with ADB as I do NOT have root,) and at least the Standby Times were put on check. I slept last night with 79 percent charge, I woke up with 79 percent charge. And CPU Spy Reloaded recorded 5 hours 34m Deep Sleep (That's consistent with my actual sleep time of 5:40)
That's the good news. The tears come when I start to run a Podcast or sync my Fitbit. I last 12 hours between those with occassional use of two bars of LTE. The most SOT I've gotten was around 3h30m, but then again when the Z5P was new it wasn't known for having record beating, or just good, SOT's...

Yippieh, made software repair - battery drain is gone!!!!
But together with battery drain the a2dp protokol is gone, too :-(
so no more controlling the phone/calls by the use of the car audio (radio).
and yes, i did a second repair and NO apps installed. lets see, if the mobile will work together with my vehicle in a "virgin" style.
otherwise this will be a guarantee issue.

I've just bougth a new Z5 dual with Android 7.0 on borad. (My Z3 dual battery after 3 years of using became to weak - at least 20 hours after full charging)
After 100% charging my new Z5, the battery lasts 22h only....I have the same configuration and apps like in my old Z3.
Is it only my problem or someone else have similar? Maybe it is And 7.0 problem?(my Z3 is on 6.0).
thank you in advance for any help.

Huih, problem for me solved!!!!!
Did three times (sic!) softwarerepair in row. Afterwards installed the mobile without SIM and without sdcard (lets say: pure android install).
It worked. everything works fine the way as i bought the mobile with android 6.
no guarantee for anybody else - for me the world is shiny again

battery life depends upon so many factors include call time, mobile data usage, screen brightness, apps running on background etc. So please keep in mind all these and repost the battery life.

@PDas is absolutely right. Mind also that the Z3 dual has a 3100mAh battery and the Z5 Dual has a 2900mAh one but anyway with a smaller battery you you get 2 more hours compared to the Z3 dual, that's a great technological advancement. In real life this is absolutely a great battery life but once again, all depend on how much you use your phone. WiFi on all time, for example, when you have no coverage will consume battery, Low mobile signal will provoke some drainage and so on.

Hi there PDas,
simple comparison - my old Z3 with the same apps and configuration as Z5 can hold (general usage) even 3 days (when new) vs 18 hours in Z5...(also when new, 5 days of usage).
